If you are interested in background information about the programme, please scroll down for the programme document and specific information in relation to specific objectives.

The new programme is thematically much more focused than the previous Estonia-Latvia programme. One of the key elements, which define the thematic focus, is the set of result indicators of the programme. As all the supported projects need to contribute to fulfilment of result indicators, please check the documents below, which explain, how the baseline and target values of result indicators were established.

Education, training, skills’ development and ICT developments are considered as horizontal modes to achieve the objectives of all priority areas.

In March and April 2015 the JS organised launching events of the programme 2014-2020. Please read more at
